    This is a used Aguilar GS112 bass cabinet, in very good condition. The cabinet sounds great. MSRP is $669.00, street price is $499.00
    All GS series cabinets feature cast-frame drivers, phenolic tweeters with an integral phase plug and variable tweeter level control. Neutrik Speakon and quarter inch inputs, seven ply void-free Philippine mahogany construction, and interlocking corners are also standard.
    The portable GS 112 combines full lows, "growly"mids, and a smooth top end with an impressive amount of volume to make one of the most popular cabinets on the market. When the GS 112 was released it not only won awards and magazine product "shootouts" but it changed the way bass players think of 12" speakers. Fatter sounding than 10" speakers and quicker responding than 15" speakers, this cabinet has found a home in all styles of music.

    • One 12" cast frame woofer, 56 oz. magnet
    • Power handling: 300 watts
    • Impedance: 8 ohms
    • Phenolic tweeter with integral phase plug
    • Custom crossover with variable tweeter control
    • One Neutrik Speakon and two 1/4" inputs
    • Frequency response: 42 Hz to 16 kHz
    • Sensitivity: 95 DB 1W 1M
    • Heavy-duty spring loaded handle
    • Interlocking corners
    • Dimensions: 14"H x 19"W x 18"D
    • 7-ply, void free Philippine mahogany
    • Weight: 42 lbs.

    The low-profile GS 112 has an unusual shape—it has the deepest enclosure of these ten cabinets, and it’s also the shortest. Two ducted ports reside below the compression tweeter. The rear-mounted jack panel offers a pair of 1/4" jacks, one Speakon jack, and a tweeter attenuator. Aguilar mounts one spring-loaded handle to the cabinet’s side, opposite the woofer. The GS 112 is easy to carry thanks to its moderate 39-pound weight and soft, rubber-coated handle. The GS 112 sounds very deep. Low-note fundamentals sound full and fat with a barbecue saucelike thickness that extends into the upper midrange. The G-string sounds especially thick, which adds body to the dead spots found on many Fender J -Basses. Slappers will dig how the tweeter adds tasteful bite to the Aguilar’s relaxed and open midrange character. Fingerstyle players will appreciate its low-mid fullness, and upright players will enjoy its smooth, full-bodied richness. The GS 112 impressed us with its chameleon-like ability to complement the sound of a wide range of basses. If you think big and fat is where it’s at, check out the GS 112.
    …After much discussion and hot debate, the votes were cast, and the Aguilar GS 112 edged out the pack by a nose. Most testers found the Aguilar’s compelling depth and thickness irresistible. The versatile and well-rounded GS 112 performed admirably in a variety of settings and appealed to a diverse range of players. Thanks to its big tone and universal appeal, the Aguilar GS 112 earns our Top Tone award.

    $275 or best offer

    P.S. I can supply more images if needed. The 1st pic makes it look rusty & dusty - must've been flash/lighting.
